BEING HASSLED BY INSURERS?
THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT
The Greater Louisville Medical Society’s mobile
app has several features designed to help our
physician members. Among the most useful is
the “Report Insurance Hassle” button on the Main
Upon pushing “Report Insurance Hassle,” this
feature allows any GLMS physician member to
instantly reach out to the appropriate GLMS staff
and inform them of insurance related problems. In
2014 alone, our Physician Education and Practice
Support Team helped physicians get back over
$250,000 and expects to resolve over $1 million
in the coming months.
To report an insurance hassle, members will be
asked to provide basic insurance and payer infor-
mation including the carrier, reference number
and whether or not the practice is contracted
with the carrier through an independent practice
This service is only for GLMS members and their
office staff. For more information about insurance
hassle reporting, please contact the GLMS Physician Education and Practice Support Department
at [email protected].
Other features available on the mobile app include
digital versions of the GLMS roster, our monthly
publications, the GLMS Presidents e-Voice and
even reminders of upcoming physician events.
